This photo I have taken in a hotel room in Switzerland. We planned this shooting together, and we were both very happy about the results. This image was taken with natural light from a window. No flash was used. The weather conditions were partly cloudy, just perfect for this natural light condition.
An "e" prefix is most often short for Latin "ex": "out of, from."
So "emerge" can be understood as "e-merge" - merging with something by leaving it.
Which is obviously a paradox on the face of it! Can we make some sense of this?
But look at it this way. By becoming each day a new and better version of ourselves, we also become newer, truer versions of everything we always were. Think of it as an e-merge: Leaving our old selves to merge back into ourselves, bigger and better.
Life is not static. It is about dynamics. Life is about change.
As a portrait photographer, those are the dynamics I endeavor always to capture in my subjects. To help them see themselves as I see them: Constantly emerging and stepping out of themselves, but then to come back in - truer and better.
Salvador and Nadine at the 'Vrouwenpolder' beach in the Netherlands during sunset. Salvador a mixture of Appaloosa and Friesian blood and Nadine a very pretty KWPN-horse. They are stable mates and friends. Nadine, just 4 years old and for the first time on the beach did so well because her more experienced friend Salvador was with her.
